Claire C. '18 Wins Second Place in Congressional Art Competition
Claire's work will be displayed for the next year at the U.S. Capitol building.
Claire C. '18 has won second place in the Congressional Art Competition with her photograph 'Purple Dragon'. Claire submitted her work through Ted Lieu's Office in the 33rd District of California where district artists selected the winning entries.
The Congressional Art Competition is a nationwide high school visual arts competition sponsored by the Congressional Institute recognizing and encouraging artistic talent found in each congressional district. The competition began in 1982 with more than 650,000 high school students participating overall.
Claire will be recognized in the district and at the annual awards ceremony in Washington D.C. and her work will be displayed at the U.S. Capitol building for the next year.
Thirteen students will attend an Ivy League or Stanford and 18 students will continue their education at California colleges and universities.
This is the second year in a row that Isabel has won her grade level contest.
"Winning was really amazing because it felt like all of my team's hard work paid off."
